I've been busy reengaging with work and .org after my typical year-end blackout. My usual process has been to document planned changes prior to the season starting. That has led to disconnect between what I thought would be ready for the Christmas lights display and what actually was.
I'll try something from WordPress.org by adding a look-back model to document and evaluate changes, having lived through the pain points, instead of trying to guess what they are ahead of time. For 2020 - a year that was novel to say the least - things were challenging. That being said, objectively, 2020 was the best and most popular season so far.
I just returned back from #WCUS 2019 in St. Louis, and this, by far, is my favorite city. Many seem to agree, since it's already been decided to return for 2020!
Being one of the co-leads for WordPress 5.3, my agenda was quite different than in WordCamps past. I wanted to attend some talks, gather some swag, and, most importantly, meet my other "squad" members in person. I've spent the past few months Slacking with them on the daily, and I had yet to meet most face-to-face.
